Winemaker's Notes:

Rich, but at the same time well-structured and elegant, harmonious Auslese. Very appealing interplay between minerality, floral, fruity and herbal flavors and citrus aromas. Very good aging potential.
My Notes:

About JJ Prum:

For centuries the Prüm family has called the village of Wehlen home. The 33.5 acre estate consists of nearly 70% ungrafted vines. Holdings are in the best parts of the top Middle-Mosel sites: Wehlener Sonnenuhr, Zeltinger Sonnenuhr, Graacher Himmelreich, Graacher Domprobst, Bernkasteler Lay, Bernkasteler Badstube, and Bernkasteler Bratenhöfchen. Average annual production is 13,000 cases. The harvest at J.J. Prüm is always extremely late, and the wines are very long-lived.
